One reason that we love art so much is that it has the power to move us. They say that an image can say more than a thousand words and that’s because it is equipped with the tools we use to process the world in our most basic ways. After all, for millions of years our ancestors experienced the world through sight before we developed language. So if you’re looking for art for your home or business, then you need to consider the mood you want to set and how you want to achieve it.
Whenever you want to set a mood with artwork the first thing to keep in mind is colour. It has been scientifically proven that colour has an impact on the way we feel. Red is passion, green is regeneration, blue is tranquillity, brown is earthy, black is dramatic, and white is clean. Of course, everyone is unique and has their associations, the feelings you experience when you see a particular colour might not be the same that others feel. So don’t just go with what you’re told about colour, look at the colour for yourself and see how it moves you.
The technical aspects of a piece of art have a lot to do with the mood that it sets, but you also need to consider what the art is depicting. Do you want an abstract work or something representational? Abstract artwork is great if you're going to get at the mood in its most pure form, separating it from literal imagery. But representation artwork has a power of its own. Images of nature in full bloom tend to create an earthy and natural mood. The sea can be calming, or it can make us nervous, depending on whether it is at rest or in the midst of a storm. Think about what mood you’re going by considering the images you associate with that mood.
Interaction With The Room
When choosing artwork for a room, it’s important that you always keep the rest of the room in mind. You won’t just be looking at the artboard itself; you’ll also be looking at the colour of the wall that it’s hung on, the lighting in the room, and any other objects that might be nearby. So if you want to create a certain mood in your room, it’s best to make sure that the artboard you choose and the rest of the room work together to make the mood. If you place an artboard that’s bright and upbeat inside a room that’s dark and dreary you’re going to be sending mixed messages rather than creating a clear mood.
